“I love creating but it becomes a guilty pleasure if you always use raw resources to do so.”

The world’s resources are limited. So, what to do as a designer? How to still celebrate the pure joy of making and craftsmanship without having to use up the planet’s precious raw materials? ‘Pallet Thief’ is Anton Brunberg’s answer.

He calculated that there are some six billion pallets in circulation worldwide. Most are made of wood. Each year, one percent of those pallets reach the end of their lifespan or are lost. By tapping into this industrial global supply, Anton has found his own natural resource, which provides him with all the materials he needs. Through the humble pallet, he can carry on doing what he loves with a clean conscience.
